Item description for Yves Klein: Into The Blue (Can You Tell It's Art?) by Nina Hollein...
Keenly interested in everything new and free of preconceived notions, children are the ideal viewers of art. Yves Klein: Into the Blue is a playful introduction to the work of one of the founding fathers of contemporary art. With its deliberately non-pedagogical tone and unusual design, the book is also a perfect bedtime story featuring key works by the artist along with original photographs and quotations. In Klein's pictures, children experience a wide range of approaches to painting, from a canvas covered completely with plate gold to a radiant blue sponge, to the imprint of a painted woman's body on paper. This book sends art lovers of all ages on a fantastic journey into the world of Yves Klein, following his development from a daydreamer to an artist who invented his own color, which soon became famous: International Klein Blue. The story is told in vivid colors and images, and a blue coloring pad in the cover, attached to a bookmark, encourages young readers to try out their own ideas on paper.
